5 ways to prepare for the Clean 9

The Clean 9 program is a body  cleansing system expertly devised and formulated by Forever Living products.  It is designed to kick-start the FIT program  and gives you the perfect starting point for transforming your diet and fitness habits.  Is it based around Forever’s best-selling Aloe Vera Gel drink and is a nutritionally balanced program which allows you to see great results in just 9 days, hence the name.

To get the best results from the program preparation is key, so here are my 5 top tips at getting the most out of your C9 program.

  1. If you have never tried Aloe Vera Gel before then when your box arrives start drinking the Aloe Gel for a week before you fully start the program.  Ideally you should drink 60mls each day, however this would mean buying an extra bottle of drinking Gel.  You can drink 30mls each day for 6 days before you start with the Gel that comes with the pack, or up your dose to 60mls and miss one of the 120ml doses on each of days 1 and 2.
  2. Cut right back on caffeine and alcohol.  It is withdrawal from these which often causes people headaches on the first 2 days.  If you can stop completely for the 4 days before you start then that will give you the best chance of success.
  3. Start doing 30 minutes of exercise every day (or more) for 5-7 days before you start so you get into the habit of it.
  4. Up your water intake to 2 litres per day.  To help with tip 2 and tip 4 together you can replace tea and coffee with hot water and lemon and always carry a bottle of water round with you.  Always start your day by drinking a large glass of water.
  5. Practice making some 600 calorie meals ready for days 3-9.  I use myfitnesspal to log my calorie intake, or if you have a FitBit  you can log your exercise and calorie intake on their app too.

You can purchase the Clean 9 from my on-line shop, and when you do please get in touch as we have a secret Facebook support group you can be added to, and I can personally offer advice and support to help you achieve your own personal goals, which can be different for everybody.  It may be you want to look and feel fabulous for a party or special event, look great in your bikini on holiday, or just improve your diet and fitness generally.

Clean 9 Cleanse Day 5 – What can you eat on Clean 9 ?

If you don’t know what the Clean 9 cleanse is, then please take a look at my previous post about the 9 Day cleanse Program, and also my previous Video diaries from Day 1, about what is included in the program, and Day 2 about the best way to prepare for your cleanse.

The common misconception about the Clean 9 is that you can’t eat at all, but this is only the case in the first 2 days. You only give your body a break from full meals at the start, then from days 3 to 9 you include a healthy 600 calorie meal into your program, either at lunch time or for an evening meal.  So tonight I recorded a video about what you can eat whilst my dinner is cooking!

You need to try and avoid processed food and high sugar and fat content whilst doing the cleanse, and if you would like to see some wonderful healthy recipes then please take a look at my previous posts All About Nutritous and Nutritious Nutrition.

Remember you also have free foods, a list of which is found in the booklet you get when you buy the program, which include many fruits and vegetables, mostly eaten raw, which are low in GI.  As of December 2016 the programme has been updated with more information about Free Foods – you can read a summary of what you need to do in my post Clean 9 Free Foods – Updated.

If you decide that you would like to try the Clean 9 yourself then please get in touch.  I can share with you lots of hints and tips and more recipe ideas to make your cleanse really successful and tasty. So get in touch to find out how to buy your own Clean 9 pack and get started on a new you.

I am also currently looking for people who are looking for extra income to join my growing team, and if you have a business which involves health or fitness, adding the Clean 9 to your business by joining my team could be just what you are looking for.  We offer full support and training to new team members, get in touch to find out more.

We also have a private Facebook support group which we can add you to, where you can get support and guidance for the whole of the program, and keep in touch with others also on the program.  The support of knowing you are not on your own can really help.

Failure to prepare is just preparing to fail, so get in touch to find out how to buy your own Clean 9 pack and get started on a new you.

Clean 9 – Free Foods

When you do your first Clean 9 (C9) Cleanse with Forever, one of the hardest things many people found was not eating ‘proper’ food in the first two days.  From day 3 you have a 600 calorie meal every day, which conversely many people struggle with eating a meal with that many calories in one go.

***** I have written a new post about C9 Free Foods in the new FIT programme released in December 2016 *******

How Clean 9 Works and other FAQs

I’ve been writing blog posts connected with my Forever Living business, and my own experiences of using the products, since January 2013, and it is fascinating to see how people end up at my blog, and the questions they ask in Google searches. Although my previous posts  do answer many of the questions, I thought that a post pulling together the most frequently asked questions and pointing readers to the best resources would be of use.

How does Clean 9 Work?

Clean 9 is a cleansing program which gives your body and gut a rest and helps your body get rid of toxins on the first two days through taking regular food out of your diet but including Aloe Gel, which has a cleansing effect on the bowel, and a protein shake and other supplements for nutrients and energy. To see in more detail why the Clean 9 Cleanse is so successful, read my post Cleanse verses diet – why is the Clean 9 detox so successful?

Can you do Clean 9 without Gel?

The cleansing part of the Clean 9 relies on the Aloe Gel to cleanse the gut – so you can’t do the Clean 9 without that fundamental part of the programme  However you can use the Protein Shakes, Garcenia tables, Forever Lean, Forever Therm and Fiber as part of a healthy diet and they will assist you in your weight loss efforts.  If you take a look at our Forever F.I.T. Website  you can find all these products available individually in the Fitness and Weight management area of our shop.

What do I eat on the Clean 9 program?

On days 3 to 9  you include a 600 calorie meal each day into your programme, to reintroduce food in a controlled way into your diet.  These meals should ideally not include processed foods or foods high in sugar fat or salt.  There are calorie charts and meal ideas in the booklet which comes with the pack, and a few ideas on our Nutri Lean Website too.  The booklets can be downloaded from the Forever F.I.T. website.

Can I eat Clean 9 Free Foods even on Days 1 and 2?

You can eat Free Foods on the Clean 9 on all 9 days of the program, for more information on what Free Foods are then take a look at my post Clean 9 – Free Foods.  However if you eat too many of these foods then you may not get such good results, so you should only eat them if you absolutely feel you need to, better a free food than a doughnut. They should be used to curb cravings, but only in moderation on all days.

What does Aloe Gel taste like?

I have been asked this so often that  I have written a blog post just on this topic.

Can I do the Clean 9 again straight away?

We do not recommend doing two Clean 9 programs without at least a 6 week break between them.  You will only have so many toxins which need to be cleansed from your system.  You are much better off moving onto the F.I.T.1 program, or continuing with a healthy eating and exercise plan .  We often find that doing the cleansing program at the start of a new regime makes your efforts much more effective.  If you drift back to bad habits or feel you need a boost, there is no problem with following the program for 2nd time (I have done it 3 times in 18 months) but you should not do it again straight away.

Does the Clean 9 really work?

If you follow the plan and don’t cheat, the Clean 9 does work.  You may not get a huge weight loss with it – but it is a cleansing program not a weight loss product.  Many people do lose weight but that is not a sign of the program working. Most people feel a boost in energy, clearer skin, and a general feeling of well-being on completion of the Clean 9.  Don’t just take my word for it, though – we have a private Facebook group to offer support and answer queries for our customers, so just like our page on Facebook and ask to be added to the group.

Where can I find Clean 9 reviews?

Before and After Forever F.I.T.

We often feature Clean 9 success stories on our facebook page, and we feature success stories on our Forever F.I.T. website too.  I also did a video diary when I did the Clean 9 in September 2013. Here is the first day – and follow the Silicon Bullet channel for all 9 videos.

Any more questions?

So, I hope that I have answered some of the more common questions about the Forever Living Clean 9 program, but feel free to message me should you have any questions not covered here – or ask me about my next weight management information evening where you can try the gels, supplements and protein shakes and find out much more information in person.  There are more frequently asked questions answered inside the back cover of your Clean 9 information booklet which comes in the pack or it can be downloaded from the Clean 9 page on my FIT website.

We have many successful business owners who add a new income stream to their existing business through using and recommending the Clean 9 cleansing system to their clients and friends – if you would like more information about joining my growing team then do get in touch.  If you can find 3 friends who want to join you in following the cleansing program with you, we can offer a generous commission for referrals – and following the program is much easier with friends!
